021 – All Sports 1919/20

All Sports was a popular weekly sports tabloid of the inter-war years. Featuring the mixture of reports, interviews and gossip that we know so well today, it was one of the best selling weeklies of the time. I’ve scanned a history piece from 1919 which clearly shows even then they knew where the history was to be found in London, and a couple of clips from the start of the next season purely because I like the pictures!

010 – CB Fry magazine, 1904

I think this is a bit of a treat. Following on from the last post and an old clip of training here’s an article, in full, from CB Fry’s magazine. One of the greatest sportsmen of his age, CB Fry’s magazine was one of the very few doing in depth articles on sports clubs of the time and this article goes behind the scenes at Woolwich Arsenal for pre-season training and also has interest for details of ground development.

009 – Woolwich Arsenal training in 1897

Bit different today – I’m going to try and link a video from my youtube page. This is a clip of the team in training in 1897. Unfortunately I can’t say where the clip originates as I came across it on a torrent site a while back.
